Real Coaching II: Honing the Competitive Edge presents a thorough and systematic means for rejuvenating and strengthening your approach to coaching.

Based on the latest concepts of designing practices and motivating your players through mental skills training, Real Coaching II is devoted to ways of fine-tuning arousal levels to achieve maximum competitiveness. The course concludes with a three-part final project that brings together all aspects of your learning: you will develop your own personalized action plan to achieve excellence in your sport.
Feedback from Past Participants:
"This is a great course for helping veteran coaches re-analyze what they are currently doing and great for young coaches to learn about all the 'little things' it takes to be successful."
"This class was very well constructed and allowed me to expand my coaching thoughts and ideas beyond what I ever imagined. It took a little getting used to being an on-line course, my first one, but everyone was very helpful and this on-line course was well designed and easy to get used to."
